There is nothing better on a cold winters day than a nice bowl of homemade Chicken Noodle soup. I like Kluski noodles in my soups, as they seem to stand up better, and don't tend to get mushy..something about soups seem to soothe the soul..my kids gobble this right up..this is their favorite..

2In a large pot place the whole chicken, bay leaves, cover with water, make sure its fully covered. Bring the chicken to a boil, then lower the heat, and simmer for 45 min to 1 hr,till almost falling off the bones.

When done, carefully remove the chicken from the broth, set aside to cool. Skim any unwanted froth from the broth. Remove the bay leaves.

3In a medium skillet, add the vegetables to the oil, simmer for 10 min, stirring often as not to burn. I like to par cook my veggies this way, it brings out the flavors. After about 10 min, place a lid on the skillet,turn off the heat, this will steam the veggies the rest of the way through.

4When chicken is cool, chop or tear into bite sized pieces.

Add the flavor booster or boullion cubes, thyme, celery salt, pepper, salt, cream of chicken soup, stir well. This is where I taste the broth for more salt or boullion. Depending on your preference. I like a lot of chicken flavor.

Now add the cooked veggies, chicken,parsley,and noodles to the broth.

Simmer till everything is heated through.
